      On the second hill are conical mounds that mark the sunsets through the year.  If you stand on the first mound on the
      Eastern Hill you are at the spot to watch Sunsets all year as they disappear behind the mounds as the Sun moves North.

       



      The group came far and wide to listen to Frank tell his stories and to welcome the small crowd of about 40 that came.

      The axis of these mounds on the crest of a drumlin make the Sunrise on the Equinox

       



      Someone gave Frank a cedar walking stick with the mound carved on the handle.  Frank bought the ten acres that have
      the mound and put them in a National Historic Landmark status.  

       

      For those who cannot see the pictures go to this site and click the link to Shadelwald Mound Group to see them in the snow.

      When you open the site, click on the link to Shadewald Mound Group.    There are five pictures from the air that show the group.  They are hoping to have an event this weekend on the equinox at Sunset and Sunrise.
